Holiday fragrance gifts 2012, part 6

Our series of holiday gift posts continues with more travel sizes and coffrets. There are two more posts to go: budget options / stocking stuffers and luxury items. Hopefully we'll wrap it all up (pardon the pun!) by Monday.

If you missed them, check out part 1 (scented body products), part 2 (travel sizes & coffrets), part 3 (home fragrance), part 4 (gifts for men) and part 5 (solid perfumes).

    $150 is a bit steep for me, but The Providence Perfume Co. set looks neat.. I’ve been wanting to try that line but haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    • Robin says:

      It does look nice! Torn between that and the Penhaligon’s necklace, although not going to buy either :-)

  2. Omega says:

    Thanks for posting all of these holiday ideas up…kinda diggin that necklace:).

    • Robin says:

      It’s lovely. Almost a shame it’s silver though, I hate polishing silver.

    • poodle says:

      I like that necklace too but it’s not in the budget now.

  3. Emily says:

    Nice of Le Labo to offer mixed refill sets — though I still think I’d go for Patchouli 24 in all three. Hopefully Certain Other Houses whose names involve the initials “F” and “M” are paying attention.

    Too bad Moss Gown isn’t in the Providence Perfumes set, which otherwise sounds delightful.

    • Robin says:

      FM offers mixed sets in France, and never understood why they didn’t here (and actually, haven’t verified in ages, maybe none of that is true these days).

  4. Dusan says:

    Dirt and Grass followed by Laundromat – ha! Clever! :-)

    • Robin says:

      It’s very cute, although as in real life, Dirt & Grass are way more fun :-)
